We live in worlds of deep interference and complicated entanglement, urging us to think beyond the individual and the myth of self-contained, autonomous species. Shifting and never quite settling between symbiotic, parasitic, and commensalistic relationalities, the works gathered in this space aim to find moments of interruption, an open form system that encourages porosity.
They are situated in opposites, in built and grown spaces, between artificial and natural topographies, in close proximity as well as in distance. Processes such as covering and overgrowing, exposing, appropriating, protecting, housing and framing are understood as versatile. These forms of exchange are united in an attempt to find complicity and initiate modes of infestation.

Katrin Euller (*1987) lives and works in Vienna. She combines noise with dark ecologies, vulnerable technology and ambiguous collectivities in an entangled world. Euller works at the intersections of image, sound and text. She studied ecology and fine arts in Vienna.
